Introduction

Welcome to my attempt at a beekeeping blog/journal. I will try to share my experiences with these phenomenal creatures. I am using Top Bar Hives to house these bees for several reasons:
  • Price - you can build one of these with just about any scrap lumber.
  • Natural Comb - since there is no "foundation" on the top bars, the bees build cells the size that they choose.
  • Hive Health - although mites and pests will still get into a Top Bar Hive, the natural cell size seems to be a preventive measure in itself.
I hope you will find some useful info here, and perhaps you can be inspired to begin a beekeeping "journey", too.
